Weekend Getaway

Hotel was alright. Very cheap that's the reason we booked there. Small rooms you can hear everyone around you. Lobby area outdated. Seems very old. I wouldn't stay again, unless I got the same cheap rate.

Location is great

If you are trying to save money so you can spend it shopping on the Magnificent Mile, this hotel worked fine. It was around the block from the MM. I felt safe. The bed was good. The bathroom small. There are no amenities--unless you call the coffee pot an amenity. If I was trying to save money I'd probably stay here again.

Buy a metro pass and use it on all the public transportation. It was much easier and probably more economical. Also, the City Pass saved us so much time when going to the Willis Tower that it was worth whatever the price was!

Vacation day

It is a smaller hotel 1 block off Michigan avenue. It is an older facility, but a place to sleep and not much more.

Could have been worse

The hotel room was kind of dingy and the water pressure in the shower was terrible, but they have valet parking, and the staff members were friendly and helpful. The day we checked out we were going to be staying in chicago for the rest of the day, and the hotel had a baggage check for free so we didn't have to worry about where to put them. We went to timothy O Toole's a block away and the hotel had 20 % off coupons for there, so that was also nice. Not the nicest hotel for sure, but for the price in downtown Chicago it was as nice as I could have wanted.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is right next to magnificent mile, which has nice shopping and dining. Don't forget to make dinner reservations. Also, don't talk to the people who want to shine your shoes... say no thank you and keep walking.

Fun Trip

Staff was friendly, hotel was very clean, room was a little on the small side, however, who is in their room when they are in Chicago? There was a tragedy in the neighborhood, no fault of the hotel's. On the whole is was a great vacation.

Within walking distance to...

This hotel is in a fantastic location. Downtown Chicago is hustling and bustling with people, and I did not feel unsafe as a single woman walking in this area. It was within walking distance to my destination of the AVP tournament at Oak Street Beach. I walked to Navy Pier, Watertower Place, John Hancock, the fountain and many great shops and restaurants.

Parking - avoid it if at all possible. It is hard to find and expensive. Public tranportation is the way to get around to areas that you can't walk to.
